Subject[PATCH 5.0 104/146] cpufreq: intel_pstate: Also use CPPC nominal_perf for base_frequency
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Srinivas Pandruvada <>

commit 92a3e426ec06e72b1c363179c79d30712447ff76 upstream.

The ACPI specification states that if the "Guaranteed Performance
Register" is not implemented, the OSPM assumes guaranteed performance
to always be equal to nominal performance.

So for invalid or unimplemented guaranteed performance register, use
nominal performance as guaranteed performance.

This change will fall back to nominal_perf when guranteed_perf is
invalid. If nominal_perf is also invalid or not present, fall back
to the existing implementation, which is to read from HWP Capabilities
